Make peace, no war

Goodmorning everybody!
Yeah, the title of the blog post seems to be taken out of the hippy years! But it still is something that would be nice and probably make the world a better place. It came into my mind, after reading Snowy's blog where she told that a friend of her son Shaun just was flown back from Afghanistan, very very severe injured, as one of the many casualties fo that war, that I belive cannot be won.
 It lately was again a point of discussion in our parliament, if we should send another mission to Afghanistan or not. Most of the Dutch people don;t want to go on with it, but it seems we are sending again men to another province there, as they say for training policemen, so no military mission, but nobody believes that! For the moment one cannot do without the other. It may seem hard to the Afghan people who do want a change for their country and get a better life to say to them, : "we aren't going to help you anymore" and it is, but I just don;t think this is the right way to do it. But who am I, I am just a simple person, who thinks probably too simple and straight on.
And then you hear again about a young man who's future is completely changed by bad injuries, others who loose their lives, and also young men, who seems to be allright, but have sever psychological problems after returning, and that often aren't well-guided by professionals! Then you really think that life and the world suck!
Oh my, this is a real depressing start of a blog post and start of the week. Sorry, I didn;t meant it to be, but I just had those thoughts and they land via my fingers on the keyboard and into this post.

The last few days it was much colder around here, but they said probably later this week temperatures will go up again a bit, bringing more rain, well we will see. For the moment we have some sunshine, and that already looks much friendlier. Oh, this morning I saw some pigeons having a party with my bird food, but I also saw a robin! It's always a great surprise what birds come now to my little garden.

The weekend we didn;t do much, apart from watching some tv, and I could design rather well. But today I really must get away for a while from the computer, other things have to be done around here. Not that I will spend all day on them, hey, we don;t want to get into overdrive LOL! No racing car for me anymore, I think it will be more like a diesel, or perhaps to be real modern: an electric car, that needs to be re-charged every now and then, whoopeeee!
So,  what's there today for you in store? A small kit, fantasy style, in which I played a bit more with blending and cutting out pics and putting it all together on some papers. Hope you can make  a few nice layouts with this!
Time for my second coffee and then starting my engine!!
Have a fantastic day!

I'm with you. It would be so wonderful if there were peace finally around the world. There has always been unrest in the Middle East, and there probably always will be. I too, believe that this is not a war that we can win.

I love it when there are lots of birds at my feeder and around my garden. They bring so much cheer. I hope your garden stays full of little birds.

You have a great day, Hugs, Edna B.

I agree ..peace would be GREAT..but as long as there are people out there willing to do whatever it takes to destroy the hopes and dreams of everyone else..I think there isn't much hope in it.sorry.:(
